Description

Large, crunchy slices of onions, saturated with a balsamic-glaze, are grilled and topped with melted blue cheese. Serve with grilled, broiled, roasted or smoked steaks, lamb, game and/or poultry.
Would also be perfect as a topper for a Caesar salad or to accompany risotto.

Ingredients

1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup parsley leaves
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Kosher salt and cracked pepper
2 pounds large/jumbo yellow onions
2 pounds large/jumbo red onions
24 food picks, soaked in water
6 ounces or 1-1/2 cups blue cheese crumbles
1/4 cup chives, chopped

Directions

In a blender combine all ingredients and process until smooth and lightly thick. (Yields approx. 1 cup.) Slice each onion into 4 thick slices (approximately 1-in.) and spear each one with a food pick to secure rings in place. Lay skewered onion slices onto a sheetpan and brush liberally with balsamic dressing on both sides. Grill or broil onion 3 to 4 minutes per side or until onion slices are caramelized and golden. Remove from heat. Keep warm.

To Serve: For each serving, place 1 yellow and 1 red grilled onion slice on a sizzle platter. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp crumbled blue cheese and run under the broiler until cheese is melted. Transfer to dinner plate and sprinkle with chives.

Special notes

Yield: 12 servings (1 serving = onion slices + 2 Tbsp blue cheese)
